Senate defies Trump on call to investigate Hillary Clinton

President Donald Trump's relentless calls for more investigations into Hillary Clinton, her emails and the Democratic National Committee are largely being ignored in Congress, where Republicans spent years and millions of dollars on Clinton probes that turned up nothing. And Senate Republicans say Trump is wrong in prodding his attorney general via Twitter to revive an inquiry into the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee who lost the election to Trump.

"It harkens back to the notion of a banana republic," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said of what he called Trump's "inappropriate" calls for investigations into Clinton. "It's what dictators do, they look to punish their enemies."

<snip>

It's questionable as to whether Sessions would be able to order an investigation into Clinton even if he were inclined to do so: In his letter of recusal, Sessions noted he was sidelining himself from "any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for president of the United States."


Democrats said the concept of a president browbeating his attorney general to take action against a political rival is entirely misguided.

"I didn't support him for the job, but Sessions is doing his job," said Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. "It's one more example of this president's disrespect for the rule of law."

Gees i wish someone within the IRS would provide Trumps taxes !!! Whistleblower style.

why is Trump going crazy??? Is it because Mueller has asked IRS to go after Trumps Taxes?

WE NEED A hero !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Unconventional Idea

But what if the returns were dumped on the committee’s lap by an IRS employee without the Committee having made a request? That could happen under the very last paragraph in subsection (f).

Section §6103(f)(5) is a whistleblower exception to the general rule of nondisclosure. It permits disclosure of tax returns to one of the tax-writing committees by “any person who otherwise has or had access to any return or return information under this section” when that person believes that “such return or return information may relate to possible misconduct, maladministration, or taxpayer abuse.”

The plain language of this provision suggests that an IRS employee who otherwise has authorized access to Trump’s tax returns could blow the whistle on Trump if that employee believes Trump’s tax returns related to “possible misconduct” or “possible maladministration.”

MSNBC Hits Ratings Milestone, Fox News Drops to 3rd Place for First Time in 17 Years

MSNBC Hits Ratings Milestone, Fox News Drops to 3rd Place for First Time in 17 Years
4 prime time MSNBC programs were Number 1 for the week in total viewers in their respective time periods: “The Rachel Maddow Show,” “Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell”, “The 11th Hour” and the midnight re-air of “The Rachel Maddow Show.”
~~~~~> Maddow had the top ranked non-sports program in all of cable for the week. On CNN, “Anderson Cooper 360” ranked number one in in the demo for 5 straight days at 8 p.m. This ties for the longest winning streak on record for the show in that timeslot.

MSNBC’s record week comes as repeated scandals have plagued Donald Trump’s administration. First came the report last Tuesday that now former FBI Director James Comey had written in a memo that Trump personally asked him to drop the investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia. That report was followed closely by another claiming Trump gave away classified information to Russian diplomats during a meeting in the Oval Office. Finally, on Wednesday, the Department of Justice announced that they would appoint former FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel in charge of the Trump-Russia investigation.
